Sharks in the Water — Part Five


In our previous blog on “Sharks in the Water” — companies with solid balance sheets, long-term growth strategies and cash to spend on acquisitions from stressed rivals — we offered our best guess as to where the remains of beleaguered Tullow Oil will wind up in the feeding frenzy. Now it’s time to highlight the truly hungry independents: Woodside, Aker BP, CNRL and Suncor.

Take a dive into Independents’ Day pages 7 through 14 for more information.


Would you like to get on a call and chat about this with us? With our extensive international database and team of 27 international scouts, we are always game to engage on this and other topics!

Stay tuned for the next installation of Sharks in the Water, where we’ll share our thoughts on a few more independent E&Ps: Hess, Hunt and Murphy.
